Our Curriculum 

At Robin Hood Juniors, our school motto is 'aim high' and we apply this to all aspects of the curriculum to ensure our children get the highest quality education.


Our school curriculum is the entirety of provision and experiences planned to promote learning, personal growth and development. This includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum but also the range of outdoor learning and educational visits (including a residential trip), drama and musical performances, workshops, clubs (before school, at lunchtime and after school), assemblies, local and national initiatives and enrichment opportunities (such as fundraising and School Council).


As a maintained school, we follow the National Curriculum including a detailed programme of Relationships, Sex and Health Education. We are committed to ensuring our pupils are taught a curriculum that aims to prepare them for life in modern Britain. Teaching the school's core values alongside the fundamental British Values (of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs) supports quality teaching and learning, whilst making a positive contribution to the development of a fair, just and civil society.


Our curriculum aims to:

  • provide a broad and balanced education for all pupils that is coherently planned and sequenced
  • equip pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life
  • enable pupils to develop knowledge, understand concepts and acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations
  • support pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development
  • support pupils' physical development and responsibility for their own health, and enable them to be active
  • promote a positive attitude towards learning
  • ensure equal access to learning for all pupils, with high expectations for every pupils and appropriate levels of challenge and support.


Our curriculum planning:

  • focuses on coherence and narrative within subject domains so that key concepts are regularly revisited and developed
  • is sequenced and progressive, going beyond the National Curriculum where appropriate
  • connects pupils to great works and achievements of the past as well as the richness, variety and opportunities of the modern world
  • teaches reflection, critical thinking and questioning
  • maintains high quality provision so that no child gets left behind.
